Victim was tough for me. It's tough musically. Tough to dance to, ect. Also the song doesn't flow that well. I always thought the post lyrics jam could have always been expanded but never seemed to. It's Bobby's days Between.

Victim sucked!!

It was like fingernails on a chalkboard, or a windshield wiper without the blade screeching back-and-forth.

I hated Picasso Moon as well!

I thought virtually all of Brents songs were for chicks, and for a while there it really was like they were playing day job every show just to fuck with me.

Does it make me an asshole for not liking everything they touched ? maybe, but I call call'em like I see them.

I'll admit to a soft spot for some of the band's most hated songs. Victim has always intrigued me - the dark lyrics, the snarling dissonance...a nice contrast to songs like Foolish Heart and Eyes that would often rise from its ashes.

Day Job is neutral for me - a harmless quickie like Don't Ease or I Fought the Law, often played with a fair amount of oomph.

Picasso Moon was never a favorite of mine during tour days, but the lyrics are fun to try & get inside, and at the end it was one of the few songs where Garcia would consistently shred his arse off. That has to count for something!

Don't Need Love is a favorite. Check out 9/3/85. Sure, it epitomizes the usual "dem womens is trouble...probably because I'm even more trouble" attitude of Brent's originals, but that raw darkness fit surprisingly well IMO into the emotional flow of many a Dead set during his tenure with the band.
